St Patrick's Day Shaker Cards Part 2

Hello Friends.

 Today is Part 2 of my celebration of all things luck and Irish - meaning shaker cards with a St. Patrick's Day theme.

  Let's shake some luck into the month of March with St. Patrick's Day shaker cards. I don't think I know anyone who would pass on a little luck.  Today I'll be showcasing chipboard shakers from Creative Embellishments and shaker mix from Buttons Galore

Creative Embellishments has a giant assortment of chipboard shaker sets covering a wide range of holidays, occasions, whimsy, and classic shapes.

Today's featured chipboard shaker sets are less traditional but great examples of how to integrate non-traditional designs into the holiday spirit.  This is the Creative Embellishments Snow Globe shaker set and Creative Embellishments Jar shaker set.




The treatments on the chipboard are quite simple.  Both shaker sets have been painted with cream acrylic paint - and gold embossing added to the top layer of the snow globe.  The Jar was left natural with no treatment. Creative Embellishments Jar shaker set


 The Shamrock Border was cut apart and added to the inside of the jar shaker.




Every shaker needs fabulous shaker mix. It's St. Patrick's Day so I am going for some mix that has a bit 'ol Irish magic or at least luck.  The cards today use  Buttons Galore - Sprinkletz - Erin Go Bragh , a combination of unique festive polymer clay pieces.  


Both cards are finished with Buttons Galore's  Glitter Shamrock Buttons. These buttons have shanks. Depending on the project, I'll cut the shank off if I need the embellishment to be flat against the card/project.   Most of the time, however, I leave the shank attached and thread wire through it.  I'll use the wire as a "stem" and glue the stem to the card.  




My paper choice today is Photo Play Paper - Tulla and Norbert's Lucky Charm Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Pack.  It's as cute as can be with the sweetest touch of all things lucky including Tulla and Norbert.  



Thank you for visiting.  Happy crafting.
